I must compliment Chuck on his creations. At 49 and 230 lbs, I wrote Chuck to see if his boards could support my weight. Sure I'll build a thicker one for you. And He most certainly did. In fact, I love my HT Square Tail so much, I had him build me another. Both of these boards are wonderful, artful, soulful rides. It takes me back to sunny childhood/teenage days. My nine-year old son is in awe of his Dad cruisin' and carvin' around his school's playground and the local park. I tell you, ten minutes on a BARFOOT would bring about world peace. It doesn't get any better than this. Thanks for all your extra effort Chuck!
